THIS year's Favorite Books issue has a retrospective feel. Inside, you'll find pieces on the pioneering comics artist Winsor McCay and children's author Beverly Cleary, as well as a reflection on rereading and a look at the lingering influence of the chapbook. At the heart of all this are the lists of our favorite books of the year: 25 works of fiction and poetry and 25 of nonfiction, culled from our reviews in 2007.
